16U Rat Modular Chamber with Non-Shock Floor

Model 80016NS


Rat Modular Operant Chamber with extra tall test area and perforated stainless steel floor. Shown with accessories.


Lafayette Instrument Company's newest edition to the operant conditioning test chambers boasts features not found in other chambers, yet is fully compatible with all 3 inch wide modular panels available from other manufacturers. The Model 80016NS is virtually identical in function to the Model 80004NS chamber, but it contains a taller test area. A perforated stainless steel non-shock floor comes standard with this unit.

Note: Model 80016NS is for the chamber and grid floor only. It does not include the chamber accessories shown in the photo, a control, or a power supply. These items should be ordered separately as needed. We would be happy to assist with the design of a complete test system.


  • Easily Removable top with just Four (4) large Thumbscrews
  • Large Stainless Steel waste pan slides in and out without catching on channels for easier removal.
